    Hi,
    I'd like to compare the values, temperature, pressure, %RH from my own domestic weather station against an official weather station in the country.
    Could you tell me where are weather stations (with the sensors) around Arklow, Gorey and Wexford area where I could place my own sensors nearby and compare the values?


    Thank you for your help

    The nearest synoptic stations are Johnstown Castle and Oak Park. There are many more climatological stations but their readings are not published in real time.

    Thank you Goath Laidir,

    I'll visit the castle in the same time. If you know exactly where are the sensors, I'll try to be close to them.

    Here's a table of the exact coordinates and aerial images of all the stations in the Met Éireann network.

    'Mothman', a poster on here (though I haven't seen him on here in a long while) I believe runs an official weather station in Ashford, Wicklow (or at least he once did). He might be worth getting in contact with.
